The grind is tough. We’re all just trying to get by – but at what cost? You can chase a dream but if you’re in the working class – everything else suffers for it. In ‘Still Want You Around Me’ Jeremy Neale explores the sentiments not often shared with those closest to us when we’re strung out or snowed under – featuring the feel-good sing-a-long chorus of the summer!
